Chris Pratt ATTACKED For Wearing “White Supremacy” Shirt

The left even considers this as racist now…

Actor Chris Pratt took heat online from far-left critics outrageously claiming a pro-American t-shirt he was photographed in was associated with “white supremacists.” The t-shirt in question has an image of a coiled snake overlapping an American flag with text under it reading, “Don’t Tread On Me.”

The shirt is basically a version of the Revolution-era Gadsden flag, which was recently re-popularized by small government conservatives of the Tea Party. Plainly put, there is no racial connection.

Vulture writer Hunter Harris posted the photo of Pratt in the shirt on Monday; Yahoo! picked up the “story” the next day, claiming the t-shirt featured a “controversial symbol” and showcasing online far-left critics.

Here are some of the hot takes, as highlighted by Yahoo!:

One Twitter user complained, “Andy Dwyer (Pratt’s ‘Parks And Recreation’ character) would never wear a shirt emblazoned with a white supremacist dogwhistle. Chris Pratt is unequivocally the worst Chris.”

“I like him, but all these small things about his politics makes me wonder when he’ll say something transphobic, tank his career, and do the full heel-turn into a Fox commentator,” a critic said.

“Ellen [P]age called him out and some of y’all didn’t listen now look at this s***,” said another critic.

In February, actress Ellen Page complained about Pratt attending a Christian church. The “Juno” star said Hillsong Church, which Pratt proudly attends, “is infamously anti lgbtq.” Pratt responded to Page, writing in part via social media that “nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”

Again, the symbol on Mr. Pratt’s shirt has no ties to race. New Yorker Magazine, reporting on the history of the Gadsden flag in 2016, acknowledged that it has no historical link to race (emphasis added):

The Gadsden flag is one of at least three kinds of flags created by independence-minded colonists in the run-up to the Revolutionary War, according to the writer and historian Marc Leepson, the author of “Flag: An American Biography.” Liberty flags featured that word on a variety of backdrops; the Pine Tree flag floated the slogan “An Appeal To Heaven” over a depiction of a pine tree. Neither endured like the design of Christopher Gadsden, a Charleston-born brigadier general in the Continental Army. His was by far the coolest, with its menacing rattler and provocative slogan. … Later, in what may be America’s first-ever political cartoon, [Benjamin] Franklin published the famous “Join or Die” image, which depicts the American colonies as segments of a snake. Among other borrowers, Paul Revere put the snake in a seventeen-seventies newspaper nameplate. Gadsden’s venomous remix, for a flag used by Continental sailors, depicted the reassembled rattler as a righteous threat to trampling imperialism. “The origins of ‘Don’t Tread On Me,”’ Leepson summarizes, “were completely, one hundred percent anti-British, and pro-revolution.” Indeed, that E.E.O.C. directive agrees, “It is clear that the Gadsden Flag originated in the Revolutionary War in a non-racial context.”

It is common for Pratt to be a target of the Left and mainstream media, however. In December 2018, for example, the actor was smeared as “problematic” by TV Guide for his “offscreen life.” “When you take a deeper look at Pratt the man and not necessarily Pratt the actor, some of the shine wears off,” whined TV Guide. “Although he can be as funny offscreen as he is on — his recurring ‘What’s My Snack’ videos on Instagram are almost always delightful — it’s impossible to ignore some problematic aspects of his life offscreen.” In short, the outlet was upset that Pratt — a pro-hunting open Christian — is associated with the Right politically.

      And here is “WHOSE THE RACIST LESSON” for the demonrats!
      It is a historical fact that every piece of racist legislation that was
      ever passed and every racist terrorist attack that was inflicted on
      African Americans, was initiated by members of the Democratic Party.
      History shows that during the past 160 years the Democratic Party
      legislated Jim Crow laws, Black Codes and a multitude of other laws at
      the state and federal level to deny African Americans their rights as
      citizens. Congressional records show it was Democrats that strongly
      opposed the passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments. These three
      Amendments were introduced by Republicans to abolish slavery, give
      citizenship to all African Americans born in the United States, and give
      Blacks the right to vote. Congressional records show that Democrats
      were opposed to passing the following laws that were introduced by
      Republicans to achieve civil rights for African Americans: Civil Rights
      Act of 1866 Reconstruction Act of 1867 Freedman Bureau Extension Act of
      1866 Enforcement Act of 1870 Force Act of 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871
      Civil Rights Act of 1875 Civil Rights Act of 1957 Civil Rights Act of
      1960 And during the 60’s many Democrats fought hard to defeat the 1964
      Civil Rights Act 1965 Voting Rights Act 1972 Equal employment
      Opportunity Act After reviewing all of the evidence, many believe
      America would have never experienced racism to the degree that it has,
      had not the Democrats promoted it.Source material by Wayne Perryman

      The DDD(DUMB DUMBER demonrats) Party started with slave owners of the
      south. The KKK was founded and run by DEMOCRATS.DEM President Woodrow
      Wilson proudly showed to his Cabinet at the White House the WHITE
      SUPREMACIST film “Birth of a Nation” which gloried the KKK. Wilson
      segregated the Federal government. The KKK rose to its zenith of power
      and respectability because of DEM Pres. Wilson.Margaret Sanger, the
      secular patron saint of the DEM Party, was a rabid RACIST WHITE
      SUPREMACIST Eugenicist who dreamed of eliminating Blacks from the human
      gene pool. LIBS looove her.All but 3 of the 24 Southern DEMS, including
      Sen. Al Gore Sr, who for RACIST reasons voted against the Civil Rights
      Act of 1964, remained lifelong DEMS as did most their children and
      grandchildren. They did not all become Right Wing Republicans. DEM
      Senator Robert Byrd, who Hillary called her mentor ant the Conscious of
      the Senate,, was KKK Grand Dragon who recruited over 150 new KKK
      Klansmen. Republican party was founded to END SLAVERY and it did It
      continued through the days of LBJ and his “Great Society”. The demonrats
      still own slaves, that population that sucks upthe welfare and other
      enhancements to sustain their lives(“YOU”) with absolutely no remorse
      for taking unearned welfare. demonrats are desperate to keep these
      programs alive and increasing to enhance their voting block and make
      their welfare recipients dependent on them. As LBJ(after assassinating
      JFK, yes demonrats did that to there OWN PARTY)said at the signing of
      his “Great Society” legislation, “We have now secured the N vote for the
      next hundred years.” In other words, he made the
      Black/White/Red/Yellow, and Brown Population of welfare recipients
      slaves to them with no way out. You say I am WHITE PRIVILEGED I am a
      HighSchool dropout I “GET NO HANDOUTS” and “I SUCCEEDED in this GAME
      CALLED LIFE” by HARD WORK and PERSEVERANCE and I have to OVERPAY for
      insurance to cover demonrats NON-WORKING SORRY -SSES. I raised two
      children one w/a Phd/MedDr and another w/MBA on a low income middleclass
      salary w/NO HELP FROM NO-ONE(Govt Asst)! So you no what…YOU ALL CAN
      KMA with your racebaiting BS get up off your SORRY -SSES and make
      something of yourself. Break “THE demonrat STIGMA OF RACISM THEY HAVE
      “PUT” AMONG US!” Quit having the govt supporting you and do it yourself
      The key to success in this world is to work hard and do what is right.
      Trying to forcefully take success from people and redistribute it will
      never work, and the harm always outweighs the good.

      I agree with You. These lefties no nothing about history except for how they interpret. I have that shirt. It has nothing to do with race. My thing was it represented freedom. As far as Chris Pratt’s church, maybe he read the Bible and knows what God says. Homosexuality is an abomination. In God’s eyes. There are other scriptures who denounce LGBT relations. You can try and sugar coat it any way—that lifestyle is a sin; however people are not to hate the sinner but just the sin. Read a Bible—you might learn something.

    I’m glad I went to a Private Catholic School! We Learned most all the stuff that the Public schools neglected! That was in the “50’s/’60’s! I didn’t have to study much in Community [Junior] College! The Nuns ‘beat’ History, Geography, Math everything into us! Now the public schools are much worse! The schools are scaled to the lowest common denominator!

        As an 81 year old I have a closet full of white shirts and have worn many of them without incident. Many men and women have done as I and went to war to keep this country as free as the Constitution allows. Now we are asked to allow stupid people give it away my answer to that is Hell No. Those of you have the freedoms paid for by many lives to travel so why not use it and get out if you do not put America first. To the three who were born in this country you should go back and look at your oath of office then try to uphold it.

    Will support a Christian Patriot Family Man Like Chris before Deniro or Milano. I have a bunch of Don’t Tread on Me shirts and other Patriotic Shirts. I guess if you wear a Pro America Shirt the left think you support White Supremacy. I say if you can’t support this nation and it’s Judeo Christian ethics pack your ditty bag and pick a new country to live in.

    The liberals have gone crazy with the word “racists.” In accusing someone of being racist, they show their ignorance. The liberals don’t even know what they are talking about. They have NEVER FACED REAL RACISM, they just grows the word out because they don’t like the fact that you don’t believe as they do and that you can think for yourself, unlike those who are always throwing out the words “racism” and “white supremacists.” The liberals shows that they are NOT EDUCATED. IN FACT, THEY ARE COMPLETELY IGNORANT.

    Anything the right ones to use as white supremacist, to destroy the culture they will do so anything they do is OK this is exactly the way the communist party works to destroy the culture. If I wanna wear whatever I want to wear down the street this is America if you don’t like what I got on you don’t have to look at it I don’t tell you what to wear because I would be a homophobic girl slobber phone back or a faggot phobic combo, no that don’t bother me what you say about me is my right to wear whatever I want to wear down the street without any interference from you just ask me that interfering with you which I could care less i’m like most Americans remind their own business but the left or communist they seek to destroy everything we on the right hold dear to this culture Or Attack not because they care what we wear it’s because they want to destroy our culture whether it be a single like the Boston Red Sox or the Boston Indians are the Boston Braves whatever this is always found S hate when it’s nothing but our culture you don’t like this country get the hell out of my country we don’t need trash like you here! After all myself and many of the Americans in this country have later lives on the line for this country and many have laid your lives down for this country so if you don’t like that that’s tough crap!
